DAILY GIST HUB gathered that Barcelona youngster, Gavi has told the club’s manager Xavi he has no intention of leaving Barcelona this summer.
This is despite Chelsea’s effort to take him away from the Camp Nou.
The 18-year-old Gavi is already one of the key players in Xavi’s XI but his future is now in doubt following an ongoing contract issue.
The Spain international recently put pen to paper on contract extension which required that he be registered in the first-team squad.
But La Liga stopped his registration due to the club being unable to comply with the salary cap limits.
As a result, the youngster has remained on his old Juvenil A contract, meaning he could be available on a free transfer this summer.
The Blues want to pounce on the advantage with recent reports suggesting its officials have met with the player and his family to discuss a summer move to the Premier League.
According to SPORTS Now Barcelona head coach has privately spoken to the young midfielder, reassuring him he remains a vital player under him.
